Happy Birthday GA!

So we missed GAs birthday by a few days but did manage to get together on Saturday night with CBGB and GAs daughter Vicky and husband Mike... we met at Haven and had a fun "dinner" and then went on to Mike & Vicky's new place nearby.

I put "dinner" in quotes because this is actually more of a grazing place than a dining place- which is completely fine with me... I don't have a lot of photos (distracted by the company I guess) LOL but I do have the complete menu so you can check out the incredible selection of things to eat and drink.


the menu is divided by food type because everything is small plates - and sharing is encouraged-





a wonderful selection of charcuterie-


we did the butcher's plate and it was plenty for the six of us...


their cheese selection was outstanding for the area - the cheese cart is a relatively unheard of offering in Florida- maybe it's the climate...






we also had the cheese monger plate - EIGHTEEN cheeses was so much - we took home about half of the plate...



I checked out the goat tacos which I liked a lot- CB also ordered them and said he had expected more chunks of meat rather than the "pulled" meat-


the cue card for our charcuterie plate-


you can BYO for a corkage fee of $25 a bottle-  so we each brought a pair to share- not surprisingly each of us liked our own choices the best- LOL

we brought red and white burgundies of course-


so check it out if you are in the Hyde Park/Bayshore area of Tampa-


and now we are on to Thanksgiving preparations and awaiting company - we ordered a smoked turkey from Greenberg's!


will keep you posted on how the various menu items turned out!
